About Us

Maggie Crighton


With Outsourced HR we like you to think of us as your own HR department…just not based on site!
Obviously there are immediate benefits to be seen in terms of overheads, but our company ethos has always been to provide HR expertise at an affordable price which is specifically tailored to the individual need.

Maggie Crighton founded the company nearly two decades ago after managing successful teams in senior HR roles with household names such as Debenhams, Hamleys Toys and Edinburgh Woollen Mill where she held the role of Group HR Director.

“I have always taken great pride in being able to build credible and trusted relationships with people within our business community.

Over my career I have learnt how to quickly grasp and understand all kinds of business situations and then provide practical solutions, this not only helps to build relationships but also plays a significant role in helping to reduce tension in often very stressful environments.”




"Maggie has provided HR support to our business since 2015.  We rely on her advice to ensure that we look after our valuable workforce and she makes sure we get things right.  We love her straightforward approach to what can be a complex and sensitive area of our business” her knowledge within the field of Employment Legislation is very impressive  and  saves us so much time."

"It has been an invaluable help to Pioneer over many years to have had Maggie at Outsourced HR working in tandem with our in-house HR Department. No matter how big or small the issue, Maggie has been there for us where extra help was needed and we have always found her professionalism and knowledge on a wide range of employment issues very reassuring.
We love her boundless energy and always can do approach to everything."
